    it says there is no peripheral connection. No headphone, headset or speaker plugged into audio jack. But it worked before with the speakers on the monitor. It did not need anything plugged in.

Alright, I got the answer for ya, first, go into your control panel. Click on Sounds and Audio Devices. Listed in this window should be the name of your sound card. Under that, should be Device Volume, and at the bottom, should be the Speaker Settings, click into Advanced, next to speaker volume. It should show you a diagram of a monitor with the amount of speakers it has selected shown next to it. Where it says Speaker Setup, click and then scroll down until you see 3 settings labeled Monitor Stereo, Monitor Stand Stereo, and Monitor Mounted Stereo. Whatever one enables the sound will be the one you want to stick with.

Are you forget to install sound driver during installing operating system on your laptop? So first check that drivers are properly install or not. If it is not install, install it. If already installed, try to update it.

Still you are not getting any sound on your dell laptop so it also possible that the sound card is possibly dead. If the computer uses on-board sound (meaning there is no separate card with sound jacks on it), that is more problematic. That part on the board cannot be replaced without replacing the whole motherboard, normally. In either case, install a new sound card and use its jacks for audio.

Where are you expecting sound to come from? Do you have external speakers? Are they plugged into the right jack on the back? Do they also plug into the wall with a a/c adaptor? Are they part of your display? HP and Compaq Desktop PCs Connecting Speakers or Headphones Windows Vista

Speakrs don't work on new HP Pavilion desktop.


If you're using Windows XP, go to the Control Panel, then double-click on Sound, then go to the Audio tab and make sure the playback device is set to your Realtek output.

If you're using Windows Vista, go to Control Panel and click on Hardware and Sound, then click on Sound. Make sure your Realtek device is selected with a green check mark. If it isn't, just click on it and then click the Set as Default button down below. Vista sound configuration is kinda quirky, and it does do some kind of detection when you plug a cable into an audio jack, so you might leave this screen up while you plug your speakers into the green audio jack in the sound card and see if it pops anything weird up.

Trying to add speakers


The only way i can see of feeding two sets of speakers from the one pc would be to buy or make up a "splitter" audio lead .....i.e a 3.5mm stereo jack on one end connected to the pc with two lots of wiring going to 2 3.5 mm jacks. I don't know whether a store like Maplins would sell such a lead. Are you any good with a soldering iron??

Hi, Have just purchased a Compaq SR5522. Already had fairly new flatscreen monitor with built in speakers so we didn't need new ones. Everything is connected up correctly and the monitor is working fine...


Check the connections first. There are usually at least two jacks on the back of a PC that look alike. Make sure you are connected to the one that is markes Speaker or has a tiny graphic of a speaker. Id the new connector is USB, then that's not it. Check the sound settings on your PC. If there is more than one output option, you may be sending the sound to the wrong one.

Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer


Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.
